People on our social media sites were horrified at our front page story last week.
Pensioners Archie and Janet Daly were attacked in their own home by masked thugs wielding CS Gas. Here’s what you had to say: “A despicable violation of a vulnerable couple in the sanctuary of their own home.

“What’s the world coming too, not safe in their on house, hope they are ok”- Gillian Greenhorn (via Facebook)
The possibility of refugees being housed in Rutherglen and Cambuslang continued to prompt debate:
“Hope the councillors who made this mad decision practice what they preach, again what about our kids, families, all on waiting list for houses are they to be forgot ? A just hope people remember who is pushing for this and don’t vote for them”- Davy Robertson Oneil (via Facebook)
“we have plenty of our own who are waiting for a house, If politicians want to be voted in, they should think again.”- Margaret Brown (via Facebook)
The issue of school buses shows no signs of going away:
“Surely children’s safety is of importance no matter what cost ! And to walk that in the winter weather wouldn’t be very nice with low temps an ice an all so for safety reasons but the councils can spend money on things that are of no or little use.
Time to get ur act together always helping people from other country’s an forgetting our own sort it out an before anyone says an being racists no am not sick of our own people born here an breed here being treated like second class”- Steff Blue (via Facebook)
“Got a letter home from school saying that lunchtime crossing patrols are also being stopped from next month, says a risk assessment has been done and they are not needed, does a child have to be killed before these people get priorities in the correct order”- Liz Young (via Facebook)
“tell them to stop investing money in roads that aren’t needed and then there might be money for buses! #saynotocathkinreliefroad and use the council’s cut of the cost for this white elephant to pay for school buses for at least the next 3 or four years.”- Jacqueline McEwan (via Facebook)
“But we can take 20,000 immigrants with no Housing for them ??”- Garry Stewart (via Facebook)
Finally, there was support for Patricia Morrow who wants a permanent tribute to Bobby Murdoch in Rutherglen:
“Yes then Colin Jackson”- Davy Robertson Oneil
“get this happening!!”- Scott McCorry (via Twitter)
